A Library of the World's Best Literature - Ancient and Modern - Vol.XXI (Forty-Five Volumes); Jefferson-Kinglake
Cosimo, Inc., 1 juin 2008 - 408 pages
Popular American essayist, novelist, and journalist CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER (1829-1900) was renowned for the warmth and intimacy of his writing, which encompassed travelogue, biography and autobiography, fiction, and more, and influenced entire generations of his fellow writers. Here, the prolific writer turned editor for his final grand work, a splendid survey of global literature, classic and modern, and it's not too much to suggest that if his friend and colleague Mark Twain-who stole Warner's quip about how "everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it"-had assembled this set, it would still be hailed today as one of the great achievements of the book world. Highlights from Volume 21 include: . the writings of Thomas Jefferson, including the Declaration of Independence . the letters of Samuel Johnson . the writings of Ben Jonson . selections from the historical writings of Josephus . selections from Juvenal . excerpts from the Kabbalah . the philosophy of Immanuel Kant . the poems of John Keats . the religious devotions of Thomas Kempis . and much, much more.
